LONDON,  April 10, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

One of the major trends to emerge in the healthcare industry in the last year
has been the expiration of patents on several blockbuster drugs. This had led to
increasing competition from generic drug companies such as Actavis Inc. (NYSE:
ACT) and Avanir Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR). For major drug
manufacturers such as Zogenix Inc. (NASDAQ: ZGNX), the key will be to continue
to boost their product pipeline. Major drug manufacturers are also likely to
collaborate with biotechnology companies such as Celsion Corporation (NASDAQ:
CLSN) that are developing or have developed potential blockbuster drugs. On
Tuesday, healthcare stocks ended on a mixed note even as the broad market posted
significant gains. StockCall professionals have completed their technical
